Until the publication of this book, Alexander Feklisov's role was unknown to the general public. Feklisov reveals for the first time that he was the case officer handling the secret Rosenberg intelligence network in New York. He claims that he actually formed a close friendship to Julius Rosenberg and always felt Julius and his wife had been wrongfully executed. No ordinary intelligence officer, he was also the case officer of atomic spy Klaus Fuchs in London, and finally acted as the secret messenger between President John F. Kennedy and Nikita Khrushchev, helping to end the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962, as seen in the Hollywood movie, Thirteen Days. - Publisher.
